12 Tips for Petite Styling…

I am excited to reveal todays top tips for you - day one of my 12 days of OYS Christmas.

I often receive messages asking for advice on dressing petite figures for success. Petite means 5'3" or under in the UK. Here’s todays bumper packed 12 tips for you ...

1 - High waisted trousers that sit above your natural waistline are your B.F.F.

2 - Vertical stripes lengthen and elongate the body - bonus they give a slimming effect too!

3- Short tops (purposely not using the word cropped top as you’ll run for the hills) but shorter tops / jackets worn with higher waist trousers are a game changer!

4- Smaller accessories and bags keep you in scale and proportion

5 - Avoid larger oversized prints that can be overwhelming - unless that’s the look you are going for!

6 - One colour head to toe - Monochrome - elongates the body and will make you appear taller!

7 - Wear a long straight party dress with a side split this Christmas - the split balances the figure and again elongates the body.

8 - Avoid ankle straps on shoes - they cut across horizontally and will make you appear shorter!

9- High heels -always lengthen the legs - wear in a similar colour that matches your trousers or tights to create the illusion of longer legs

10- Three-quarter length sleeves are flattering as they show the best part of your arms

11 - Wrap over knits enhance the waistline and the v- neckline gives a great elongated vertical line 
12 - Avoid loose fitting dresses - a dress that hugs or skims your figure is way more flattering.
